The dahlia shares its wisdom: “I have multiple layers to showcase my depth and my beauty. The universe is layered with the seen and unseen. My friend, your physical body is also layered with skeleton, muscles, flesh, nerves, and skin, which create your outer beauty. Your inner beauty consists of multiple layers masked as feelings and thoughts. You destroy yourself in a web of superficial layers to prove who you are. Peel the layers one by one; then grace will reveal itself in all its splendor.”
Look at the photo of the dahlia. As you observe each petal, open your awareness to any thoughts and emotions arising. Go in to the core of your deepest emotions, and there you will find grace.
